Male Dancers needed for MorrisonDance project “In the Space of Dreaming” to premiere at Cleveland Public Theatre


MorrisonDance is seeking to add MALE dancers/performers to our unique dance ensemble for our new project “In the Space of Dreaming” to premiere during Cleveland Public Theatre’s DanceWorks ’17, June 1-3, 2017. In line with MorrisonDance’s goal to synthesize a breadth of dance styles, auditioning performers may have experience in any movement style; however, training in modern, ballet, and/or jazz techniques is preferred. Performers must be 18 or older and have prior performance experience. The project will be heavily rooted in contemporary techniques, improvisational and experimental development, ensemble work and nontraditional partnering.

Interested dancers, please submit your resume, photograph (headshot and body shot if available) and any available video links to help us get to know you as a performer! You may email these submissions to Jenni Hankey at

Performers will be required to attend weekly rehearsals and must be available during the week of technical rehearsals, Monday, May 29- Wed May 31, and for the performances on Thursday June 1 – Saturday, June 3. Performers will receive a stipend for the project, and may have opportunities to join us in future paid performance and/or outreach projects.

IN THE SPACE OF DREAMING will be a collection of dances inspired by the indescribable experience of dreaming. Everyone dreams, yet no one can fully explain why. Through archetypes, physiology, symbolism, and imagery, dreams carry a fascinating space in our lives. In collaboration with composer Braden Pontoli, MorrisonDance performers will bring the visceral experience of dreams to the stage in this visually kinetic tour through the Space of Dreaming.

MorrisonDance is a non-profit performing company whose purpose is to inspire and cultivate public awareness of the art of dance through performances and cross-disciplinary collaborations. To provide, promote, and participate in educational and outreach programs that increase the awareness of dance and that encourage community cultural and artistic endeavors; to research and develop integrated and cross-disciplinary teaching and presentation methods for dance; and to create opportunities for artists and performers of various media, augmenting the accessibility of dance as a performing art.
